The most popular series of Indoor Athletics heats at primary school level to date was brought to a close with the Hull Active Schools Sportshall Year 3/4 and 5/6 finals at Ennerdale Leisure centre in February. Five school teams competed in the younger age group and a further six school teams battled it out for the older age category from the 35+ teams throughout qualifying.
Sportshall Athletics is a team format. This means every jump, run and throw counts towards an overall team score. The team with the lowest score after all events is the winner; if you finish in 1st place in your race you receive 1 point for your school team.
Congratulations to Eastfield Primary School who won the year 3/4 championship and to Gillshill Primary School who took home the Gold medals for the year 5/6 championship. Both schools finished in the Silver medal position in the two competition categories respectivly. Ings Primary (Year 3/4) and Christopher Pickering Primary (Year 5/6) took home Bronze.
